Eloisa Records has unveiled new various artist compilation album I Am Eloisa, out 2nd October.
An eight-track release featuring an array of artists from across the drum & bass sphere, I Am Eloisa kicks off with the rave-inducing jump-up vibes of ‘Heat’ by Hong Kong producer Kray and similarly high-energy club cut ‘Abstract Out Of Sight’ by Exile (who contribute to Eloisa’s maiden release) & Jappa. Maintaining this euphoric, club-ready energy, Midlands-based artist False Relation then steps up with the explosive ‘Insular’, Inperspective regular Will Miles drops the piano-led, breakbeat-heavy ‘Summer Down Under’ and Southampton’s Jak B harnesses a melodic drum & bass vibe on ‘Early Mornings’. Sumone then enlists the vocal expertise of Jamaican MC General Pecos for ‘Clear The Way’, a raucous banger that harks back to the golden era of jungle, Trojiin, who dropped a four-track EP on Eloisa back in May, unloads his trademark hard-hitting sound on ‘Portal’ before Inperspective label boss Chris Inperspective rounds things off with the fluttering, contemplative breaks of ‘Cocoahead’.
Launching back in March under the Inperspective Music Group umbrella, Eloisa Records is ‘on a mission to surpass barriers in the D&B scene’ and instil some fresh energy into the scene. The label has since released music from Simon Splice, Styke, Bungle and, most recently, pyxis.

Closing things out is the soft, meditative ‘Zen’, with Sydney throwing her enchanting vocals into the mix.
A relative newcomer in the world of D&B, pyxis burst onto the scene at the tail-end of last year with a release on the revered Goldfat Records. Since then she has put out more music on Liquid Drops, Sunny Moves and Just Noyze before landing on Eloisa.
A dynamic four-track release, brimming with bold atmospherics and rich soundscapes, ‘The XX’ demonstrates a talented young artist on her way to the top.
Brazilian D&B producer Bungle drops new EP ‘Runaway’, out 1st September via the rising Eloisa Records.
The three track EP begins with title track ‘Runaway’ that see’s a rolling and grit fuelled bassline interject superbly with sharp and snappy percussion. Things take a deeper and darker turn with ‘Unleashed’ as technical and expansive atmospherics run rampant throughout the tune as the drums chop and change exquisitely. Seeing things home is an industrial growler, and not one for the faint hearted. The aptly name ‘Articulate’ is Bungle at his best and will no doubt be a choice cut for DJs across the drum & bass spectrum.
‘Runaway’ marks the fifth release on the burgeoning Eloisa, the fresh imprint ‘on a mission to surpass barriers in the D&B scene’.
